I have no idea if Mcilrath is ready. Last week against Bridgeport he didn't look ready, where are the scouting reports about how he is playing defense. We hear about his fights, what about his play??

All personnel decisions will be made through a "win now" fuilter, including trading young players.
Excellent note.

He reminds me alot of McD when he was at Wisconsin. Very similar skill set. the future is very bright for this kid.
He's had problems playing his position. Being on a powerhouse team covers up some of those mistakes. Thats okay, he's a freshman and he'll learn, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.
